Liddell-Scott-Jones Definitions


Adv. of εὐθύς G2117 (q. v.).

Thayer's Expanded Definition

εὐθέως, adverb (from εὐθύς), straightway, immediately, forthwith: Matthew 4:20, 22; Matthew 8:3, and often in the historical books, especially Mark's Gospel (where, however, T Tr WH have substituted εὐθύς in some 35 out of 41 cases); elsewhere only in Galatians 1:16; James 1:24; Revelation 4:2, (for פִּתְאֹם, Job 5:3). shortly, soon: 3 John 1:14. (From Sophocles down.)

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

εὐθέως, the more common Hellenistic form for εὐθύς and εὐθύ, is found before both vowels and consonants : cf. Schmid Atticismus iii. p. 126 and Mayser Gr. p. 245. The following may serve as exx. of its use—P Par 63xi. 55 (B.C. 165) ἠβου [λόμ ]ην μὲν εὐθέως καταπλεύσας ὀφθῆ [ν ]αί σοι κατὰ τὸ ἐπιβάλλον, P Tebt I. 39.10 (B.C. 114) εὐθέως παραλαβὼν Τρύχαμβον, P Ryl II. 229.9 (A.D. 38) ἐρωτῶ σε ἐκ παντὸς τρόπου εὐθέως μοι πέ [μ ]ψαι τὰς ἄλλας (ἀρτάβας) γ ̄, ib. 230.10 (A.D. 40) μὴ [ο ]ὖν ἄλλως ποιή [σ ] (ς) μὴ ἵνα δόξωμέν σε εὐθέως ἠλλάχθαι τὰ πρὸς ἡμᾶς, ";do not neglect this, lest we think you to have become all at once estranged towards us"; (Edd.), P Fay 119.34 (c. A.D. 100) εὐθέος πέμσις τὰ κτήνη, ";send the animals at once,"; and BGU II. 423.8 (ii/A.D.) (= Selections, p. 91) εὐθέως ὅτε εἰσῆλθον εἰς Μησηνούς, ἔλαβα βιάτικον παρὰ Καίσαρος χρυσοῦς τρεῖς, ";straightway when I entered Misenum, I received my travelling money from Caesar, three gold pieces.";
